This report contains findings from a project conducted by the Project HOPE Center for Health Affairs under contract #DCT-98-5194 to the Maryland Health Care Commission (formerly the Maryland Health Care Access and Cost commission). The purpose of this project was to compare Maryland residents who obtain health coverage through the small group market to those who obtain coverage through the large group market. The report makes comparisons across several dimensions that include: (a) demographic characteristics, such as age and gender; (b) clinical characteristics, such as presence of chronic conditions and overall “illness-burden” using ACG category assignment; and (c) health care expenditures and utilizations.
